Go to: Dinosaur eggs are found in India

Marionette's Avatar Jump to comment 12 by Marionette

I have to wonder how long it will be until someone ignores the "infertile" part (and the age and, well, everything else), and makes a comment that, if the eggs were real, the scientists would have hatched them, therefore proving the eggs are a fabrication...

But it is quite a nice little discovery.

Go to: 'Major discovery' from MIT primed to unleash solar revolution

Marionette's Avatar Jump to comment 29 by Marionette

Hopefully this will help solar take off.

As for skyscrapers and similar tall buildings, considering the updraft is powerful enough to make rain fall UP (well, not "fall" up, but you know what I mean), I'd like to see horizontal turbines placed along the sides of skyscrapers to take advantage of that updraft.

Combine something like that with an omnidirectional turbine on the top of the skyscraper, plus any solar panels they are able to place on there, and that should help take a bit of their energy load down, though I doubt it would be enough to completely remove it.

Still, a lot of people giving a little bit can add up in a hurry.
